Question and Answers

Q:

i need to know what voltage to use to test or how to test a kenmore valve #5303208499 from a kenmore free standing stove stove M# 79075711893

A:

You should not use voltage to check this valve. If the igniters are glowing when you set a bake or broil cycle, then the safety valve is typically considered to be okay. The most frequent failure when the oven or broiler will not ignite is the glow bar igniter on the burner. See if the broiler or the bake burner will ignite. If one of the burners ignites and the other one doesn't then check to see if the igniter is glowing on the burner that does not ignite. If the igniter is glowing then the circuit is complete and the gas valve is not "open" through that portion of the circuit. A technician will normally check the amp draw through the wire between the igniter and gas valve when the igniter is glowing. If the amp draw is not at least 2.9 amps then igniter will need to be replaced. If the amp draw is 2.9 or higher, then the safety gas valve will need to be replaced. The information on this type of ignition system is shown in the image below. NOTE: You should only conduct this technical testing if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely check the amp drawer using proper testing equipment.

Q:

I have a crack in part # 316011200 on my Kenmore gas range model # 79075711893. Do you have a video showing how to install part # 316011200?

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

We do not have a video showing this procedure but I will provide the instructions below.

Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing. 

In order to access and replace the surface igniters, the top must be taken off. Before the top can be taken off, remove the grates, burner caps and the drip pans. Remove the three screws from each burner base securing the burner base to the top. NOTE: Use caution when removing the screws or they could snap. Loosen and run the screw out but if it gets tight, run the screw back in and then out. You may have to do this 2-3 times before the screw will come out safely. Open the oven door and remove the screws along the bottom of the top securing the top to the frame. Lift the front of the top up a little and slide it forwards and remove the top. Make sure that the burner assembly does not hang up on the top when removing or you could damage the gas lines.

You will likely have to disconnect the burner from the gas supply line at each burner. Flip the burner over and you will see the screw securing the igniter to the bottom of the burner. Pull the igniter wire off of the igniter and reverse the procedure. 

If you do not feel confident in removing and replacing the surface igniters yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician.  You can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.
